Bladerunner

Lately I've been hearing a slew of references to Bladerunner as an excellent, groundbreaking scifi movie, so I decided to watch it. I saw it once as a kid, but I didn't remember much of it outside of the "test." I wonder what role that played in the development of my current enthusiasm for AI and cognitive science.

Its very noir, very Chinatown-esque. My favorite line was at the end, when the gotee-guy (who had previouly only spoken in Japanese says) "Its a shame she won't live. But then again, who does?"
